Tony Bradley (C. North Carolina)

 

Measurables: 6’11”, 7’5” wingspan, 248 lbs, 19.3 years old

Strengths

  • Very good rebounder, especially on offensive glass
  • Physical inside, well-built for 19 year old
  • Gets off ground quickly to finish
  • Nice touch around rim, flashes of post game
  • Good feel as roll man, not afraid of extra pass
  • Draws a good amount of fouls – 7.6 FTA/40
  • Arms are like glue – if he gets his hands on a rebound he’s getting it
  • Makes the easy dunk finishes around the rim – 57% on 2 point
  • Unfazed by contact near rim
  • Flashes of being a crafty passer

Weaknesses

  • Not an elite athlete
  • Offensive game doesn’t go beyond 10 feet
  • Doesn’t quite have size of NBA defensive anchor
  • Easily goaded into fouls – 5.0 fouls per 40
  • Not much of a shot blocker – 1.6 per 40
  • Never saw more than 20 mins of play – small sample size
  • Clogs lane at times – not great offensive IQ
  • Pretty limited player
  • Shies away from drivers coming to rim

Overall

  • Bradley has an advantage over a lot of similar prospects in this year’s class in that he has actual center size and that he’s just 19. Still, he’s similar to a lot of guys because he’s really a rim runner and dunker who is an average defender. He’s also got a leg up on other big man prospects because he’s one of the top rebounders in this class. He isn’t an elite athlete, but he is great at boxing out and getting in position for rebounds. While he’s very raw on both ends, he’s a solid player and will continue to develop in the NBA.
